And now my problem
after I start my comp, when all icons are on desktop,a windows installer pops up and displays--configuring a bluetooth software.And than displays --error 1706.I have to cancel it before I am able to proceed.
TRIED SYSTEM RESTORE--NOTHING.
Removed all addins in outlook--nothing
Finally,run Hijackthis but Im afraid to remove anything--because I tried once and had to restore system :flowers:
Is my computer infected?
Thanks,

Windows Installer error messages are not uncommon.

Please download, install and use the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility - (it will list all programs that use Windows Installer).
  • Double-click on msicuu2.exe and click "Next".
  • Accept the license agreement, click "Next", then click "Next" again.
  • Click "Finish" when done.
  • Go to Start > Programs and click on Windows Install CleanUp to launch the program.
  • In the list of Install Products, check to see if the program for which you are getting the Windows Installation pop up is present.
  • If so, highlight that entry, then click on the "Remove" button.
  • Then reinstall the program if you still want to use it again.
-- The Remove button does not remove the program. It removes the install configuration.
-- If you plan to reinstall the program, you should reinstall the program in the same folder where you originally installed it.


If that does not work, there are more suggestions in How to resolve Common "Windows Installer" Problems.

Thank you for your answer.
If I remove a program, how to reinstall it?

The Remove button does not remove the program. It removes the install configuration.

Do you have Bluetooth software? If so, reinstall by double-clicking on the setup program or using the software CD it came with.
